Synopsis

A web security application hosted on the remote web server has a command injection vulnerability.

Description

The remote web server is hosting a version of Symantec Web Gateway that is affected by a shell command injection vulnerability. The ipchange.php script calls the exec() function with user-controlled input that is not properly sanitized. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary shell commands as the apache user. After exploitation, obtaining a root shell is trivial.

Solution

Upgrade to Symantec Web Gateway version 5.0.3 or later.
